Highly doubt it: Deviated - verted, flexed, or rotated uterus is not, repeat not abnormal. You (and many) other women were born this way, the idea that it's 'abnormal' is out of date. Ask if your doc can help you more. ...Read more

Normal variation: There is a wide range in the tilt of a woman's uterus. The main issue is that in certain sex positions, the penis will bump against the uterus with thrusting if the uterus is tilted. Usually changing position takes care of it. Otherwise, a tilted uterus is of little importance except when a doctor is performing procedures on the uterus. ...Read more

When will my baby bump start showing? I was told my uterus is tilted towards my back, and I am currently 14 weeks with absolutely nothing yet.

It depends: Women have different body sizes and shapes, thus there is no way to know exactly when you will start to show. By twenty weeks, the top of the uterus is generally at the belly button level. Depending on your body size and weight, this should help you guess when you will start showing. ...Read more

I had an Early abortion June 12th got a Depo-Provera shot then had the abortion repeated on June 18th my uterus is tilted I'm still spotting? Is that Normal?

Yes: A woman's uterus can lie in a forward tilt or backwards tilt as their normal position. Spotting can continue for days to weeks after a procedure or spontaneous abortion.

I have a small cyst on my left ovary and my uterus is tilted to the left. Will that cause me to feel more aches? I'm 6 weeks pregnant

Probably not: since it is small. Tilted uterus is probably not due to the cyst . Cyst may need to be observed by your ob-gyn depending what kind of cyst it is. To contact me click here --> https://www.healthtap.com/experts/12714048-dr-vahe-yetimyan ...Read more

Last week I was diagnosed with vts. My uterus is also tilted forward could they have possibly missed 2nd baby I was 13 weeks when diagnosed?

Ultrasound not 100%: It is possible at that gestational age that the second baby baby was missed by the ultrasound. Most technicians are highly trained and can image the uterus even if it tilted forward. Follow up with your primary care physician or OB or see them immediately if you have any vaginal bleeding or sharp abdominal pain. ...Read more

When you've got a tilted uterus, are some sex positions better than others?

History: Historically, gynecologic surgeons recommended shortening of the round ligaments that suspend the uterus in the pelvis to revert the tilt in an attempt to improve chances to conceive. This procedure has now been abandoned, because it did not yield better results. If the tilted uterus is implicated in intercourse being painful, other positions than the one that cause the most pain can be tried. ...Read more
